Trayvon Activists Force Elderly Couple Out Of Home


Thanks to a tweet by Spike Lee, an elderly Florida couple is now residing in a hotel. Lee tweeted the couple’s address as that of the home of George Zimmerman, the man who pulled the trigger in the Trayvon Martin case, to his 250,000 followers.

Since then, the couple, a 72-year-old man and 70-year-old lunch lady with a heart condition, have received death threats, hate mail and unwanted media publicity.

Apparently, the confusion stems from the fact that the woman has a son named William George Zimmerman who resided at the address in 1995.

William Zimmerman traced the original tweet back to Marcus Davonne Higgins, a man who lives in California. When Zimmerman contacted Higgins, Higgins responded with “Black power all day. No justice, no peace,” followed by an obscenity.
